Yacht Basin Marina in Holland, Mich., is embarking on an extensive expansion.

At the center of the project is The Staterooms — fully furnished, weekly vacation rentals located on the second floor of the Yacht Basin Plaza building in the heart of the marina. Phase I is expected to be completed in July; Phase 2 is slated to open next spring.

A second part of the expansion, scheduled for a Memorial Day opening, is the Down the Hatch Party Store.

“We are very excited to undertake a new project that will not only enhance what the marina has to offer to its existing customers, but further support Yacht Basin as a complete recreation and service destination for those enjoying Lake Michigan,” marina president Tom DenHerder said in a statement.

“Our goal is to make this a water-accessible retreat with all the amenities of a small-town community,” he added. “We have been fortunate to experience strong occupancy for the past several years and feel that this will only enhance what we already have to offer. The only other tenant we are looking for is someone to establish a restaurant in our plaza building to fill the remaining space.”

Formerly known as Bay Haven Marina, Yacht Basin Marina is an owner-operated, full-service marina on the north shore of Lake Macatawa in Holland’s Park Township.

The marina features 371 slips, 137 in/out racks, a large heated pool, banquet facilities with seating to 300, laundry and fish-cleaning facilities, heated and cold storage and lifting capacity to 70 tons.

Other tenants of the marina include Galati Yacht Sales (Great Lakes Holland office); Harbor Yacht Sales; Maritimo USA; and Anew Hair Salon & Day Spa.
